Our school was lucky enough to receive a grant to buy STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) equipment through the Local Schools Community Fund Project. This money has come from the Federal Government to support school improvement initiatives.
Students will be able to engage with equipment they would not be able to access otherwise, develop critical thinking, problem solving and team work skills as they work on STEM tasks together. With the addition of these extra resources, we are also positive that our students will be equipped with the skills and knowledge they will need for potential future careers in our multi-cultural community and a world of ever changing technologies.
One of things that stands out from what we have purchased is the 3D printer!
